Gigapixels of Andromeda

Astronomy From the Web: Nature, Science & Tech

To watch this video is awesome in the true meaning of the word (usually misused in context).

Released by NASA last year, this video shows over 100 million stars and thousands of star clusters embedded in as part of the Galaxy, stretching over 40,000 light-years. A rather humbling reality… that the Hubble Space Telescope made possible for humans to see. Just imagine drifting into the spiral galaxy.

Watch on YouTube (use full screen for best effect)

Music: ‘Koda – The Last Stand’ from Silk Music
